Laser Hair Removal Q & A

How does laser hair removal work?

Shaving, waxing, and other hair removal treatments are temporary ways to get rid of unwanted hair. Laser technology permanently destroys the hair cells responsible for growth. Surrounding skin remains untouched, so you get smooth, hair-free skin. 

Laser light energy penetrates the outer layer of your skin and is absorbed by hair follicles beneath. Hair follicles absorb the light energy. When they heat up, they’re effectively destroyed and can’t grow hair in the future. 

What areas can you treat with laser hair removal?

Laser hair removal can work just about anywhere you have unwanted hair. This includes your:

  • Upper lip and chin
  • Underarms
  • Legs
  • Arms
  • Back
  • Bikini line
  • Chest

Laser hair removal offered at Beauty Planet Laser Aesthetic Center is safe for all skin types and most hair colors. Men and women benefit from the procedure. 

Does laser hair removal hurt?

Most patients tolerate laser hair removal quite well. Treatments are virtually painless. Expect the laser to feel like a rubber band snapping against your skin. The team at Beauty Planet Laser Aesthetic Center may provide cool clothes and gel to ease any lingering sensations. 

Sessions are relatively short, too. Depending on the area treated, you’ll come in for just 10-60 minutes. 

How many laser hair removal sessions will I need?

Your hair grows in stages and not all hair follicles are in the same stage at one time. Laser hair removal works best when follicles are in a growth phase. Multiple visits ensure the laser gets all hair follicles in their growth phase so you achieve smooth skin.

Depending on your hair density in the area treated, the team recommends between three and six total sessions. Your provider at Beauty Planet Laser Aesthetic Center develops a plan that’s right for you. 

What are the results of laser hair removal?

You’ll notice a gradual decrease in hair thickness and density of hair in treatment areas. Over time, all or most of the unwanted hair will disappear. You’ll also notice a decrease in stubble, rashes, and ingrown hairs. 

Beauty Planet Laser Aesthetic Center wants you to be happy with your results. The team does everything possible to ensure your complete satisfaction and get you a permanent reduction of hair growth in treatment areas.
